The Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Yale University is sad to report that William Kelly Simpson (B.A. 1947, M.A. 1948, Ph.D. 1954), Professor Emeritus of Egyptology, died on March 24, 2017. He joined Yale’s faculty in 1958. He retired in 2004.

A memorial event to honor his life and legacy is being planned.
